Third Time's the Charm? Updates for Year 3 of the QPP

Year 3 of the Quality Payment Program (QPP) brings policy changes based on stakeholder feedback from the first two years: reduce burden, improve patient outcomes, establish meaningful measures and expand participation options. For the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track, this includes updates to eligibility, submission methods and category measures/scoring. Several new clinician types are now subject to payment adjustments and updated low-volume threshold definitions provides a new "opt-in" choice for clinicians that may have been excluded in prior years. Program year 2019 solidifies MIPS as a pathway to the Alternative Payment Model (APM) track, which has also undergone minor updates.
